after 4 hours of searching for answers and trying everything I could I need specific help. I write a report and I want to include a bibliography. I still get these error messages:

  1. Empty bibliography
  2. There were undefined references
  3. Please (re)run BibTeX on the file(s):(biblatex) "Filename"(biblatex) and rerun LaTeX afterwards.
  4. Citation 'Example Cite' on page 3 undefined*

My code looks like this:

    \documentclass[12pt, twoside]{report}
%Standard Packages
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{emptypage}
%\usepackage[round, authoryear]{natbib}
%\usepackage[nottoc]{tocbibind}
\usepackage{makeidx}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{adjustbox}
\usepackage{comment}
\usepackage{color}
\graphicspath{{Pictures/}}
\usepackage[a4paper,width=150mm,top=25mm,bottom=25mm,bindingoffset=6mm]{geometry}

% zusätzliche Schriftzeichen der American Mathematical Society
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amsmath}

%Library
\usepackage[backend=bibtex,bibencoding=ascii,style=authoryear,sorting=none]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{bibfile.bib}

\begin{document}

%\bibliography{bibfile.bib}

\newpage
\thispagestyle{empty}
\include{01_abstract}

\setcounter{page}{1}
\pagenumbering{roman}
\include{02_dedication}

\include{03_declaration}

\include{04_acknowledges}
\newpage

\tableofcontents{}

\listoffigures{}
\listoftables{}
\newpage

\setcounter{page}{1}
\pagenumbering{arabic}

\Include{Chapter1}


\printbibliography

\end{document}

I also have a part of my bibfile:

@book{Fluid Mechanics Seventh Edition,
    author    = {Frank M. White},
    title     = {Fluid Mechanics, Seventh Edition},
    year      = {2011,
    publisher = {McGraw-Hill}
}

When I am using Quick Build to file the document: latex + Bibtex + 2x Latex + Viewpdf is executed. What do I have to do to get the bibliography printed? Thanks very much for helping!

  • Have you tried to use a .bib key without spaces? @book{whitefluid, for example. What does the .blg file say? – moewe Feb 5 '16 at 7:27

The .bib key must not contain spaces, and the opening brace of the year in your .bib file was not followed by a closing brace. With this file

@book{Fluid_Mechanics_Seventh_Edition,
   author    = {Frank M. White},
   title     = {Fluid Mechanics, Seventh Edition},
   year      = {2011},
   publisher = {McGraw-Hill}

}

and a

\cite{Fluid_Mechanics_Seventh_Edition}

in your LaTeX source, everything works fine on my box.
